Culture Quotes

A Long Tail is just culture unfiltered by economic scarcity.

Chris Anderson

I think it's a very confused culture. On the one hand, no one is better than anyone else; no one is prettier. On the other hand, everyone is completely obsessed by their looks and by how they strike the world. On the one hand, we're all equal; on the other hand, everyone's a superstar. It's all very irrational, like all ideology.

Martin Amis

This president, I think, has exposed himself as a guy, over and over and over again, who has a deep-seated hatred for white people, or the white culture, I don't know what it is.

Glenn Beck

One may dream of a culture where everyone bursts into laughter when someone says: this is true, this is real.

Jean Baudrillard

If you want to learn a culture, you have to learn how to like what it likes, rather than go looking for something that you like.

John Barnes

There is only one collective human civilisation comprised of geo-cultural domains and cultures.

Al-Rodan, Nayef

We are all such accidents. We do not make up history and culture. We simply appear, not by our own choice. We make what we can of our condition with the means available. We must accept the mixture as we find it the impurity of it, the tragedy of it, the hope of it.

Saul Bellow

The more local and settled a culture, the better it stays put, the less the damage. It is the foreigner whose road of excess leads to a desert a man with a machine and inadequate culture is a pestilence. He shakes more than he can hold.

Wendell Berry

Enoch Arnold Bennett

Having only briefly summarised the dominant social order above, none of these traits we know hint in the slightest towards the idea that the people [of the Maternal Megalith Culture] in question were at their time aware of the causal relation between sex and giving birth.

Gisela Bleibtreu-Ehrenberg

To recognize that some of the things our culture believes are not true imposes on us the duty of finding out which are true and which are not.

Allan David Bloom

Nietzsche asks how it has come about that so prodigious a contradiction can exist as that between the lack of true culture and the self-satisfied belief in actually possessing the only true one and he finds the answer in the circumstance that a class of men has come to the front which no former century has known, and to which (in 1873) he gave the name of Culture-Philistines.

Georg Morris Cohen Brandes

Britain is blessed with a functioning political culture. It is dominated by people who live in London and who have often known each other since prep school. This makes it gossipy and often incestuous.

David Brooks
